'What a saga! Scifi with honest, complex humanity, physics, biology, sociology' - Tom Hanks

'Aurora is a magnificent piece of writing, certainly Robinson's best novel since his mighty Mars trilogy, perhaps his best ever' - Guardian

Our voyage from Earth began generations ago.

Now, we approach our destination.

A new home.

Aurora.

Brilliantly imagined and beautifully told, Aurora is the work of a writer at the height of his powers.

'An accessible novel packed with big ideas, wonders, jeopardy and, at the end, a real emotional punch' SFX

What happened?

Starts well: last generation colonists under survival pressure inside giant failing spacecraft. Chemical imbalances, biological consequences, political decisions.
But then there's a turn of events that makes you stop caring about any characters, the plot twists in 37 directions and becomes repetitive to the point of making you fast-scroll down, until there's nothing else.
Also suffers from "Jetson's Syndrome": there's spaceships and astronauts aplenty in this 27th century but everyone behaves as if it's still the 20th; same political outlook, no significant technological evolution other than spaceships, a complete blank on all the other areas of knowledge.

Great disappointment.
